The audio book has taken a giant leap in popularity over the past few years, since no one takes the time anymore to sit down and read a good book. Time is the key in this phenomenon. Books on CD are not as popular as books on mp3 and here is why; not only are we too lazy to read, but we are also to lazy to take a walk to the book store around the corner who sells books on CD's.

While this may sound like there are only negative arguments against audio books, there are also a few positive ones. For instance the amount of books you read/listen to in a month increases drastically when you have an audiobook subscription with one of the few big sellers. The idea behind this is that you've already paid for a book before you have chosen one, so selecting a book is less difficult. This increases the amount of audio books you listen to drastically and all just by a simple subscription service.

One big thing you have to worry about is the amount of reading material that the sellers offer. If there are not enough books at your disposal, you will start listening to ones you do not really like and you will lose interest in listening. Fortunately there are enough audio book subscription services out there that can help you.

I have read the most touching and exciting books in the last few years all because of that silly membership. Remember that the more you read the cheaper the audiobook gets! This saved my lots and lots of money, not to mention the enormous amount of time. Lets do the math. If you make about $10 an hour at your job and you choose to go to a shop and search for your perfect novel. Your book would cost $10 extra, because in the time you spent in the store you could have worked for an hour.

Have you ever noticed that reading a book in the subway is really hard, because you have to bend your neck because it looks stupid to hold your book in front of your face? No problem when you have all your audio books neatly stored on your smartphone or mp3 player. I guess the only downside is that you do not look that smart anymore to the pretty guy/girl across you.
